Wolst, Nachtwey Claim A-10 Weekly Honors

Nov. 7, 2017

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - Tommi Wolst and Peter Nachtwey were honored by the Atlantic 10 on Tuesday for their performances in last weekend's win over Davidson.

Wolst was named the conference's Co-Performer of the Week, while Nachtwey claimed Rookie of the Week honors for the third time this season. Wolst was also tabbed as A-10 Men's Swimmer of the Week by CollegeSwimming.com.

Wolst took first in the 100-yard breaststroke (56.95 seconds), 100-yard butterfly (51.07 seconds) and 200-yard individual medley (1:54.30) on Saturday to help the Colonials take down the Wildcats, 169-124. The junior from Germany also swam a leg on the winning 200-yard medley relay team (1:33.27). He's won all seven of his individual events in dual-meet competition this fall.

Wolst shared his A-10 honor with Owen Wright of Massachusetts. He's the first Colonial to win the award since Jake Ortiz earned it on January 17, 2017.

Nachtwey continued his strong start to his GW career, helping the Colonials claim all the available diving points against Davidson. The freshman from Ohio won on the 1-meter board (290.93) and placed second in the 3-meter competition (292.58) behind Ortiz.

Nachtwey has already made quite an impact at GW, highlighted by a record-setting performance on the 3-meter board in his home debut on October 21. He was also honored by the conference on Oct. 10 and 24. The Colonials have won the rookie award after their past four competitions, with Youssef Ragab also recognized (Oct. 17).

 

 

GW has off this weekend before wrapping its fall slate at Cleveland State's Magnus Cup, which runs from November 17-19.
